More Faux Mosaic

Pinkvalentine

Today, I'm sharing 2 more cards that will be part of my faux mosaic demonstration at this weekend's downline meeting.  The first card features the Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.  I have so many scraps of the Sending Love paper from all of my recent projects for Valentine's Day.  I had a piece that fit the bottom of the card perfectly, then I used various scraps cut randomly into triangles for the mosaic piece.  Once all the pieces were adhered to the sticky sheet, I sprinkled iridescent ice embossing powder on the open areas, then heated until melted with the heat tool.  I love the way the embossing powder picks up the sparkle from the paper, don't you?

The focal piece was stamped with the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and the Well-Scripted stamp set.  Since I purchased both of these stamp sets in the clear mount version, I was able to line them up on my acrylic block to ensure proper placement before stamping.  What a timesaver! 

I stamped the filigree heart onto a small piece of Whisper White card stock, cut it out and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The card was also embellished with the Pink epoxy brads and pink satin ribbon.

Happiness The second card really sparkles and would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary.  To create the mosaic piece, I started with scraps of the Bride Specialty paper cut into triangles, adhered them to the sticky sheet, then embossed with silver embossing powder.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch from a few weeks ago to design the layout.  The card also features the Whimsical Words stamp set, Groom Specialty paper, and black satin ribbon.  The ovals were cut with the Ovals die and the Big Shot.

I hope you've enjoyed these samples of the Faux Mosaic technique. 

Happy Stampin'

    I love your versions of this technique! They look fab! I especially like how the sparkly grout matches the sparkly paper on the first card – very chic!
